Fitzpatrick Company will be bringing MORE technologies to showcase at INTERPHEX 2015. Where solid dosage form requirements dominate, their equipment is instrumental in conditioning powders prior to encapsulation or tableting. Fitzpatrick and Quadro's combined particle/powder processing expertise, application knowledge and technical support provides improved return-on-investment and efficient manufacturing solutions in size reduction and dry granulation roller compaction (or powder agglomeration).
Fitzpatrick roll compactor/mill systems increase powder densities via dry agglomeration and produce free-flowing granules for high speed tableting or encapsulation (achieved via a unique pre-compression feed system and precision real-time roll gap control). Fitzpatrick and Quadro's milling solutions provide finely adjustable/controllable particle size distributions (PSDs) - leading to tighter, narrower and more on-spec PSD targets. Milling options allow for improved optimization to meet a wide range of applications - including product containment, inertion, wash-in-place or clean-in-place capabilities. Quadro and Fitzpatrick roller compaction and milling offerings are easily scalable, thus reducing lab-to-production technology transfer time and costs.
